Borrowed Wall Art Prize Liverpool

The Borrowed Wall Art Prize is an initiative of Liverpool City Council and Liverpool City Library. It aims to reinvigorate the city streetscape with contemporary art in public spaces such as the front wall of the Liverpool City Library.

The Borrowed Wall Art Prize will be run annually and aims to support young artists with a cash prize along with the resources to create a large-scale artwork on the Library's fašade. It is also a fantastic opportunity to have their work seen by thousands of people every day.

Young artists, 18 - 30 years old, were invited to submit an artwork which reflected the contemporary library experience as a vibrant cultural space where community diversity is celebrated. The artwork had to cover the entirety of the wall - a massive 6m in height and 8.8m wide.
